General Information

The school office is staffed every school day between 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
School hours are 8:45 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for grades 1-5. Students should arrive no earlier than 8:30 a.m. Lunchtime at Ridge is from 11:15 to 12:00 p.m. for Grades 1 & 2; and from 12:00 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. for grades 3-4-5 Monday through Thursday. Fridays will have the same schedule as in the past - 12:00 - 12:45 for everyone. Forgotten lunches should be dropped off on the table by the front door prior to 11:00 a.m.
Kindergarten sessions are currently 8:45 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. and 12:20 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Starting in September 2017, Kindergarten will be on the same full-day schedule as the rest of the school.
Ridge notices (from school, the H.S.A. and the community) are sent home via e-mail every Tuesday. This is a terrific way to stay informed with all the happenings in your child's school!


Please call the office with a message for a student only when absolutely necessary - new playdates, scouting and "walk home" reminders should be discussed before arrival in the morning.

Absence Line/Homework Requests

Please call 201-670-2740x1 if your child will be out of school for any reason. This number is on 24 hours a day. However, you should call the Ridge Main Office by 9 a.m. if you would like to request homework, and pick it up by 4 p.m.
